Ó Muiri calls for Departments to work together ‘before someone is killed’

Sinn Féin Councillor Barra Ó Muiri has urged Transport NI to add the Carrickrovaddy Road to the list of roads for salting following a series of collisions.

“I’m absolutely baffled as to why Carrickrovaddy has not yet been added to the salting list,” he said.

“The road is an absolute death trap after the least sign of frost and I hope that if any good can come from the latest series of accidents on the road it’s that it finally convinces Transport NI to put the road on their salting list and prevent more incidents like this,” he insisted.

“On top of that an NI Water pipe appears to have burst on the road, just past the school, turning it into an ice rink and making it equally dangerous for drivers and pedestrians.

Surely it can’t be that difficult for Transport NI and NI Water to work together and solve this problem before someone is killed.”
